It's A String Thing #183

It's still a heart theme over at Adele Bruno's blog, you can find all the details HERE.  The string for this tangling exercise was a heart string with two lovely tangles, ZENITH (by Zentangle) and CAUGHT (by Christine Reyes).

I will need to practice doing Zenith as a border, it didn't quite go as expected.  I also took a bit of liberty and added some stripes in an effort to create a bit of dimension.  Here is my tile for this week:

We woke up to some light rain this morning which is wonderful.  We are still very short of rainfall in this region so every little bit counts!

Have a beautiful day!

SKETCHING

I've been learning how to sketch/draw this last year and a half or so.  I still have a long way to go of course.  The biggest lesson is learning to love what you draw, and accepting that we all have our own styles.  Once I realised that, I felt much better about my drawings.

Here is a charcoal/pastel drawing I did last week and I was thrilled with the outcome.

I go for lessons once a week to an artist who has now become my friend.  I was so touched when she told me this was worthy of framing!!!

Have a fabulous day!

I've been trying to make time to Tangle here and there and managed to do this tile for the latest It's A String Thing by Adele Bruno.  You can find all the details HERE.  And here is my tile.

With Valentine's Day around the corner it's not surprising that hearts came into play!

Have a beautiful day!

MOMS's HOLIDAY WORK

Here is a photo of the crocheting work my Mom did during her last visit.  I was so proud of her, she really persevered.  It was a lot of new stitches to learn but she did wonderfully, in the end.

Now I need to start planning what I can get her to make on her next trip!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

First IAST Challenge for 2017!

Let's see if I can do a better job with my blog this year!  It HAS to be a good year.

Today I will share the first "It's A String Thing" Zentangle challenge tile for 2017.  You can find the details for the challenge HERE on Adele Bruno's blog.

I seriously need to Tangle more this year, it brings me a lot of "quietness" in my very busy mind so it's important that I make time for it.  I also need to restart giving classes, I really miss sharing the benefits of this art from.

I've been very busy with another "art form" this December!!!  We had my Mom over for 4 weeks and I always try to find mildly challenging projects for her to do, at 76  years of age I think it's important to keep her mind busy with tasks other than the day to day things she does around the house.

So this time around I got her crocheting doilies!  But I am keeping this for my next blog post where I will share what we both made.

Wishing you all a fantabulous 2017, may you be blessed beyond your wildest imagination!

Boy Birthday Card

Another quick share of a card I made for a young boy's birthday.

I enjoyed stamping all those individual candles.

Thinking of all my USA friends and family who eagerly (or not) anticipate the Election results!!!

Have a blessed day!

Stacked Birthday Gifts on a Card

Let me share another Birthday card I made a while ago before this blog gives up on me totally!

www.infinite-possibilities.blogspot.com

Using as many bright colours as I possibly could seeing as this card would go to a child.

This blog is a sad situation, I know, and I am sorry.  I used to look so forward to creating something to share with virtual "friends".  It seems like such a long time ago.  I think I was really hooked when I lived in the USA, it also helped that I had my friend Lisa 3 houses down and we both blogged and made handmade cards.

I am still blown away at how this move to this new town has impacted me.  And I take full responsibility for allowing the current situation to hit me so negatively.  Every day is a challenge to "snap out of it", and I will, I have the strength, I know I do, but , I'm just not succeeding right now.

So just bear with me as I work my way at my own pace through this new season in my life.  I am still very creative, mostly learning to draw, and perhaps I will get up the nerve to share my attempts.  Card making happens only now and then.  I know the solution, I know what to do to get that fire going again, I need "my people", but, this town is different to other towns I have lived in, and I still need to figure it out, and perhaps they still need more time to figure me out!

Have a blessed day!
